Forty two year old Belizean Chinese businesswoman, Yan Zhen Yu is lucky to be alive tonight after she was shot last night while at her business establishment, Taisan Supermarket located in the Louisiana Area here in Orange Walk Town.
Reports indicate that sometime around 8:00 in the evening one male individual, wearing a mask over his face entered the store and fired a single shot which caught Yu on the left side of her abdomen. The robber then proceeded to open the cash register taking an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing the area through a dark alley nearby. There were approximately five customers inside the store at the time the crime was being committed, three of whom suffered minor injuries while trying to escape.
After police were alerted, they visited the scene where the surveillance camera was reviewed but we understand that the footage is not visible enough to give a clear identification of the individual. Police, though were able to process the scene. Authorities are now in search of one male individual while their investigations continue.
